Chaigeley School is supporting Safer Internet Day 2017

Chaigeley Schools is joining the global Safer Internet Day campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2016 with the theme ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’.

Celebrated in over 100 countries, Safer Internet Day will see Chaigeley School join hundreds of organisations right across the UK and globally to ‘be the change’ and help create a better internet.

Will Gardner, Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre and CEO of Childnet, said:
“Safer Internet Day is an opportunity for everyone across the UK and globally to unite for a better internet. Whether you are a young person, parent, carer, school or organisation, we can all ‘be the change’ and take positive actions to make the internet a better place. Hundreds of schools and organisations have pledged their support for Safer Internet Day and it is this collaboration that helps ensure Safer Internet Day has such a positive impact, reaching 40% of UK children in 2016 and growing year on year.”

Patrick Boyle , IT Co-ordinator of Chaigeley School said “With the rapid expansion of social media, and a whole world of information at your fingertips it is becoming increasingly more important that our pupils are aware of the dangers present on the internet, and how safer use can help avoid these. National initiatives such as this are a great way of raising awareness and promote shared learning”.
